Brighton still rocking, despite big-name exits

Brighton still rocking, despite big-name exits

Brighton and Hove Albion, with eight goals and six points in their first two games, have reached the top of the Premier League for the first time in their history. This achievement further demonstrates that they are one of the best-managed clubs in the league. Despite their humble beginnings and uncertain future just over a decade ago, Brighton now welcomes West Ham United as they aim to continue their dream start.

Last season, Brighton achieved their highest-ever finish of sixth place, which earned them a spot in the Europa League. However, their success also attracted attention from bigger clubs, leading to the departure of key players such as Robert Sanchez, Moises Caicedo, and Alexis Mac Allister. Despite these significant losses, Brighton has remained resilient and continues to perform well.

While it may be unlikely for Brighton to mount a sustained title challenge, especially with the added demands of the Europa League, they are sure to provide entertaining football. Under the guidance of manager Roberto De Zerbi, Brighton has been involved in high-scoring matches, with goals being scored and conceded in the majority of their games.

Brighton’s attacking prowess was evident last season when they scored 72 goals, surpassing their previous record in the top flight by 30 goals. Their strong start to the new campaign suggests that they may break even more records. Additionally, the club’s economic impact on the local economy has been substantial, providing a boost of nearly 600 million pounds in the previous season.

Brighton’s success has also made them a model for other clubs of similar size. Premier League chief executive Richard Masters acknowledges that if a club performs well on and off the pitch, they can achieve European football. West Ham, another club on the rise, will face Brighton with confidence after their recent victory over Chelsea.

Currently, Brighton is one of only three clubs to have won their first two fixtures, alongside Manchester City and Arsenal. Manchester City will face Sheffield United, while Arsenal will host Fulham. Chelsea, under new manager Mauricio Pochettino, will kick off the third round of fixtures against Luton Town.

Brentford, another club punching above their weight, will host Crystal Palace in a London derby. They have remained unbeaten in their last 11 games against clubs from the capital. Tottenham and Liverpool, both with four points, will face Bournemouth and Newcastle United, respectively.

Lastly, Manchester United will look to bounce back from their defeat against Tottenham as they host Nottingham Forest.
